problem with TS101s

Started by shikhadrdo April 28, 2005
hello 
iam working with tiger sharc 101s.
my problem is iam collecting some 4K of samples and processing it ....
ex:like some spectrum is being generated using those 4k sample points.
Now that spectrum has to be plotted on the Computer screen.This DSP card
is PCI add on card hence it is placed in the PCI slot of the same PC.

So pls tell me how can aChunk of memory be shared by the host PC 
and DSP module.Is there any concept of shared memory.If yes how can that
be programmed .
Pls help me out.If u have any any information of some  related sight pls
tell me .
urgent help needed.

That depends entirely on the design of your board. Your best bet to find this information is to consult the documentation for your board.

Yes, shared memory is a pretty common concept.

In general one processor writes, then signals the other through some hardware-dependent method, then the other processor reads. Details of how it's done on your hardware depends entirely on the design of your board, etc.

I suggest that you look in your board documentation to find how the board manufacturer wanted you to communicate with that board (it may not be shared memory, it may be through DMA or some such). Look for sample code; if you can find an example app with code it'll shorten your learning cycle tremendously. -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com
